'NCIS: Los Angeles' Season 12 Episode 10: Who kidnapped Kam Hanna and why? Fans say 'the team will find her'
No matter how much fans tout her badassery, the one question that keeps gnawing at the back of our minds is why was Kam kidnapped?
The latest episode of 'NCIS: Los Angeles' revolves around Kam Hanna proving she is her father's daughter. Her kickass spirit and fight for life after she got kidnapped right at the very end of the previous episode is testament to her capability as a future agent, and how much she has learned from watching Sam on the job, or otherwise. But no matter how much fans tout her badassery, the one question that keeps gnawing at the back of our minds is why was Kam kidnapped? Perhaps a closer look at the episode's synopsis might help.
The official synopsis of Episode 10, titled 'The Frogman's Daughter' reads, "When Sam's daughter, Kam (Kayla Smith), is kidnapped after leading citywide protests, he will stop at nothing to find her. Also, Deeks rejoins NCIS and Callen searches for answers about Anna." So far we can confirm the reason why Kam was kidnapped - somebody doesn't want her leading city-wide protests. Could these have something to do with the Black Lives Matter movement that took over the nation amidst the pandemic in 2020? If so, this is the first the show's timeline will be adhering to real-life developments from last year.
So far, the only show out of the three sisters in CBS' 'NCIS' franchise has fully progressed its new season amidst the events of 2020. 'NCIS: New Orleans' has been incorporating the pandemic to the plot ever since the beginning of its ongoing Season 7, and lately initiated essences of the BLM movement too. The parent show, 'NCIS' just introduced the pandemic to its ongoing Season 18 in the last few weeks, and should Kam's protests be about BLM, 'NCIS: Los Angeles' will have hopped the wagon too.
If the protests are the reason behind Kam's kidnapping, and not leverage over her father, then it could very well be another white supremacist organization trying to make things unnecessarily difficult for protesters. We have seen in real life just how several silent and peaceful protests were twisted and turned into something out of a dystopian nightmare as the very people they were protesting against -- the cops -- allegedly hit back with more brutality against protestors. In other words, sh*t just got real. But it is however Kam's efficiency in breaking free of the shackles that has really, really appeased fans. Taking to Twitter, fans touted how "Kam’s not going down without a fight! The team will find her," and how "Kam knows how to use the skills her father taught her."
